After so many bustling cities, Siem Reap was a breath of fresh air. Partially owing to the fact that it is entirely walkable and that no building is allowed to be over 5 stories high, it is a charming city that is filled with large markets and small boutiques, local eats and upscale restaurants. Siem Reap is also the gateway to the magnificent Angkor Temples. I spent nearly two full days temple-hopping and didn’t even come close to seeing them all. My favorite was Ta Prohm, famous from Tomb Raider; it reminded me of the Jungle Book. The temple had been deserted for about 100 years and the jungle has reclaimed the man-made complex as its own.
